Building for Linux or other Unix-like OS
- The Readme for building the standard setup for Linux/Unix provides general instructions on getting started.
Specific Linux Distributions
We have documentation customized for the following Linux distributions:
Building for Windows
A separate page for building Virtuoso on Windows exists.
That said, the build process on Windows is rather more complex than on other platforms, so these pre-built Windows packages are available --
|VOS version||64-bit (x86_64)||32-bit (x86)|
|v7.2.0 (as of 2015-02-11)||
|v6.1.8 (as of 2013-12-11)||
You can manually browse to locate pre-built binaries of other versions.)
Building Virtuoso Extensions
The Virtuoso Server can be built with extensions for hosting different web scripting languages, virtual machines, and/or function libraries.
The links below list version requirements and the procedures for building these.
Hosting a virtual machine, such as Java or the CLR, requires building a special executable linked with the virtual machine and special interface code.
- Microsoft .NET CLR?
- Mono ECMA-CLI
- PHP 4.x
